Without This We Cannot Do Anything

We must know all of these things very deeply. I was going to tell all of these things, but I cannot because no one will listen to these things carefully. There are only a few devotees who want to hear all of these things very deeply. That is why sometimes I tell all these things. I am going into these stories and in the stories there are so many deep topics.

We should try to go and try to serve Vaiṣṇavas. Without this we cannot do anything. We are doing something and it is better than nothing, but we should go deeply. So, we will have to learn who are the Pāṇḍavas and who is Draupadī.

In this way, surrounded by lotus petals and other beautiful flowers, we are making a kuñja where Śrī Hari can perform his amorous pastimes with Śrīmatī Rādhārānī. When we...

Sri Janmastami-vrata and Sri Nandotsava in Chunchura Matha

Some time later, in August (Sravana), Sri Janmastami was celebrated with great festivities at the Samiti’s preaching centre, Sri Uddharana Gaudiya Matha. All the devotees in the matha, both renunciants and householders, observed fasting without water (nirjala upavasa) the whole day until midnight. The Tenth Canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam was read during the entire day. At midnight, the time of Sri Krsna’s appearance, mahabhiseka of the deities was performed, bhoga was offered and then arcana according to tradition. Srila Guru Maharaja gave a lecture on Sri Janmastami filled with philosophical conclusions, to the assembled audience...


Everyone must progress through their own sādhana. So without the order of Rādhārānī or Her followers, you should not give this mood or wealth of vraja-rasa to anyone. Let it develop within yourself before you try to give it. Independent actions yield inauspicious results. Sādhakas who are eager to reach the service of Rādhārānī must always act under guidance and wait for confirmation of inspiration.
